Frequently asked questions

A WordPress multisite network enables the creation and management of multiple websites within a single WordPress installation, which is ideal for organizations or individuals managing multiple websites and wishing to share resources and user accounts across them. Conversely, WPCS is a fully-managed, serverless cloud service designed for scalable WordPress applications, offering high-performance, scalable infrastructure, automatic backups, centralized development, and security features.

In a WordPress multisite network, all sites share the same WordPress core files, plugins, and themes, making it easier to manage updates and maintain consistency across sites. In contrast, WPCS provides centralized management through the use of multi-tenant cloud architecture, making it easy to oversee unlimited sites without sacrificing control over each site’s specific settings and configurations.

A multisite network runs on a single server, which can lead to performance issues if one site experiences high traffic or consumes a large amount of server resources. WPCS leverages a serverless architecture to automatically scale resources based on demand, ensuring consistent performance across all sites even during traffic spikes or resource-intensive operations.

Using a multisite network with WPCS is not supported, and it’s generally unnecessary due to the multi-tenant infrastructure that offers all features and capabilities typically required in a multisite network.

The expense of WPCS depends on the specific resources and the number of websites you need to operate. Generally, WPCS may be more costly than a multisite network when considering hosting costs alone. However, a fully managed cloud service designed for scalability has a positive impact on business-critical components spanning development, operations, and business automation, ensuring efficiency gains that increase incrementally as you scale.

Migrating a multisite network to WPCS requires converting each subsite into a separate, standalone WordPress installation. This process can be more complex than migrating a single-site WordPress installation, and additional assistance may be required. We offer migration support for users with the Professional service level and above, and can help guide you through the migration process.

Sharing a single WordPress installation in a multisite network can heighten the risk of security vulnerabilities affecting multiple sites simultaneously. In contrast, WPCS isolates each site within its serverless infrastructure, enhancing security and reducing cross-site contamination risk. WPCS also incorporates built-in security features such as automatic backups, malware scanning, and regular security updates.
